2012 NFL Draft Live Blog (Day 2)

33. ┬áSt. Louis Rams – Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State

Bryan just died a little inside.

34. Indianapolis Colts – Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

This is who everyone said the Colts were hoping would fall to them in the second round. Many believe that Upshaw, who was also available, was a higher value, but Luck and Fleener already have chemistry, and this will certainly help his development.

35. Baltimore Ravens – Courtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama

Best pick of the draft so far? It just might be.

36. Denver Broncos – Derek Wolfe, DT, Cincinnati

If I’m Peyton Manning, I’m starting to really regret not going to San Francisco…

37. Cleveland Browns – Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California

I’m just baffled by this pick. Why take Schwartz over Mike Adams? There were also quite a few receivers available.

38. Jacksonville Jaguars – Andre Branch, DE, Clemson

This isn’t a bad pick by any means. The Jags have made a couple good picks already in this draft. Very unusual for them.

39. St. Louis Rams – Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

Jenkins is extremely talented, but fell this far because of his off-the-field issues. He should be able to help their defense immediately though.

40. Carolina Panthers – Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State

What did Cordy Glenn do to get passed up by so many teams?

41. Buffalo Bills – Cordy Glenn, OT/OG, Georgia

This is a great pick by the Bills. Look out for them, they are silently building a good team.

42. Miami Dolphins – Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Phenomenal pick here by the Dolphins. Just like the Bills before them, they grab an offensive lineman who has first-round talent.

43. New York Jets – Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

This is a solid pick by the Jets. Hill is a bit of a project receiver, but is very talented.

44. Kansas City Chiefs – Jeff Allen, OT, Illinois

This is a big reach.

45. Chicago Bears – Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina

A solid pick by the Bears. Alshon was a great weapon for South Carolina, and his productivity speaks for itself.

46. Philadelphia Eagles – Mychal Kendricks, ILB, California

And then Weller went to a concert

Friday 5: 2012 NFL Draft

It’s after midnight so it’s technically Friday, so I’m calling this a Friday 5. It’s going to be the same as we’ve done in years past. The five best picks of the first round, the five worst picks of the first round, and the five best remaining players after the first round.

Check it out after the jump, and be sure to vote in the poll at the bottom. Continue reading

2012 NFL Draft Live Blog (Day 1)

Here we go.

1. Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Let the Luck Era begin.

2. Washington Redskins – Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

No surprises so far…

3. Cleveland Browns – Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

I’m still waiting for a big surprise to happen.

4. Minnesota Vikings – Matt Kalil, OT, USC

Again, not a surprise.

The Route to The Championship Game

This is part two of three in my look at the road teams have had to travel to get to the final weekend of college basketball. A few days ago I looked at the Road to the Final Four, and examined what each of the Final Four teams (including this year) from this millennium had to do to get to the Final Four.

Simon says, "indicate the coach that will win the Championship."

This post, however, is to examine what teams actually had to do to make it to the Championship Game. I took it one step further this time though because instead of looking at just the teams from this millennium, I’ve taken the data from every team to every make it to the Championship Game since they expanded the field to 64 teams in 1985.
